Planet Pod's Podcast
Time to call time on lead in shot - it's a no brainer!
We banned it from paint petrol and pipes but allow it to enter the human food chain - find out why it's time to ban lead shot. Sacha Dench joins Dr Julia Newth from WWT, John Gregson from Waitrose and Dr Niels Kanstrup from Danish Hunters Association on the eve of an historic EU vote to finally ban the use of lead in shot and so stop the annual killing of 1million wild birds in Europe and the dumping of 20,000 tons of poisonous lead shot across the fields on England. Hunters and conservationists are joining forces to put pressure on ammunition manufacturers and the government to implement a ban and use a safe alternative.
From the Ground Up
The global population is sustained by fragile food systems that are wreaking havoc with the environment and public health. Food systems contribute to and are significantly affected by climate change but they are also a crucial part of the solution. In this final episode of Spilling the Beans we spoke to Patrick Holden, Founding Director of the Sustainable Food Trust and Patty Fong, the Program Director for Climate and Health & Well-being at Global Alliance for the Future of Food about how and why we need to rethink food systems. Produced in partnership with Sustainable Foods Event.
